the u.s. congress, both of the house and the senate, needs to do is to repeal the national war powers act, which was never repealed after world war ii. this is what has given the president the power of executive power. the gentleman from missouri, i am with you that the repeal of the 17th amendment needs to be done. also, your caller from new hampshire, he was right on with the 10th amendment. executive orders by the president are a president's hope, a president's win and a desire. it really is not law unless it is backed by the courts. again, other people have mentioned that the courts have told the president that he needs to remove these people from that board. those were illegal appointments. he yet flaunts the supreme court. where do we stop with the executive orders? host: on the news makers this week, harold rogers is our guest. he talks about the sequester and what congress is not reaching an agreement on spending cuts. let's take a listen to him talk about whether the sequestered as any flexibility. is there any way they can decide how the cuts are put into place.

in the u.s. work more than their peers in developed nations. they are holding up their end of the american bargain that offers opportunity in exchange for effort. in response our government owes them more than hopes for a husband. they deserve nothing less than reform that gives them the tools to raise children who can imagine a future beyond the nearest street corner. that means health care, affordable housing, quality public schools, child care. thank goodness president obama went on to offer that more complete picture. a crisis as pressing as our nation's question of urban violence deserves more than the simple suggestion that absentee fathers are the smoking gun. i promise. i'll let my panel talk when we come back after the break. ♪ they see me rollin' ♪ they hatin' ♪ patrolling they tryin' to catch me ridin' dirty ♪ ♪ tryin' to catch me ridin' dirty ♪ ♪ tryin' to -- [ woman ] hi there. why do we always have to take your mom's car?
